Valley railroad group to host open house
The Mahoning Valley Railroad Heritage Association, 1340 Poland Ave., will host an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The MVRHA has railroad engines, railroad cars and cabooses on display. There also is a collection of steel mill-related railroad equipment, including a ladle car and mould car. Admission is free. The museum will be open the second Saturday of each month through September during the 2018 season. As a special event this year, the MVRHA is announcing the “Bring Them Home” campaign to move the last two Youngstown Sheet and Tube hot metal cars and a slag car to the museum site. These historic cars are on a storage track a few miles from the museum and will be moved before the end of the year. Donations will be accepted for this campaign.
